Sheri Moon Zombie,
Michael Myers is still at large and no less dangerous than ever. After a failed reunion to reach his baby sister at their old home, Laurie Strode is immediately taken to a hospital to be treated by the wounds that had been afflicted by her brother a few hours ago. However, Michael isn't too far off and will continue his murdering 'Halloween' rampage until he gets his sister all to himself.Written by
Kristina Klebe knew both Robert Curtis Brown (her father in H2) as well as Nick Mennell (her boyfriend in the first Halloween (2007)) before shooting. Rob Zombie had no idea and all the casting was random. Though when he told her about casting her boyfriend in the first film he said he was looking at a few people but he needed someone who could match her height. See more »
(at around 16 mins) In the opening hospital chase, the bandage on Laurie's head alternates between blood soaked and clean between shots. See more »
Stills of crime scene photographs of Michael's murders are shown over the credits. See more »
The Director's Cut runs 14 minutes longer (119 minutes). Among the changes:
The opening scene with Laurie walking and Loomis being placed into the ambulance is longer.
The hospital dream scene has an extra sequence of Laurie attempting to cross over a pile of bodies.
An on screen title that said "One Year Later" in the Theatrical Cut now says "Two Years Later."
During the breakfast scene, Laurie and Annie now argue about going to the psychiatrist.
More dialogue with Laurie and the psychiatrist. Laurie looks at a framed inkblot on a wall and says that it looks like a white horse.
Loomis' press conference is expanded. Loomis discusses Michael's Oedipal complex, as well as the idea that Michael perhaps saw Loomis as a father figure.
Added sequence where Laurie runs a bath and begins to freak out.
Laurie stopping to play with a pig on her way to work is removed. She instead goes to the psychiatrist and tells her about playing with the pig (we see a few seconds of it, now in flashback), and how it triggered a nervous breakdown of sorts. When the shrink denies her more pills, Laurie freaks out and swears.
The scene where Annie finds Laurie drinking a beer in her room has been expanded: They have another fight.
A non-masked Michael (along with Young Michael and his mother) angrily looks at a billboard that advertises Loomis' book.
When Laurie and Maya come home from the party, there is a short added sequence of them making tea in the kitchen prior to going upstairs. There's also an added shot of Michael apparently walking out of the house.
Brackett's reaction to finding Annie's body is longer, containing video flashbacks of real-life actress Danielle Harris as a child.
The ending is significantly different: After Loomis enters the cabin, Michael throws him through a wall, and the two of them wind up outside. Michael then removes his mask, yells "DIE!", and stabs Loomis. The cops then open fire and kill Michael. Laurie then comes out, takes Michael's knife, and approaches Loomis with it, implying that she may stab him. The cops then open fire on her and seemingly kill her. We then fade to the same hospital footage seen at the end of the theatrical cut as a cover of "Love Hurts" plays on the soundtrack.
Boogeygirl: The Sensational Comedown of a Phenomenon
The Zombie family, Rob and Sheri Moon, produce an idea of altering the identity of the Halloween killer. The aforesaid Halloween killer, Michael Myers, has become an idol for Laurie. Opening scene of the film shows Laurie at the mental hospital, how she turns out to be a Satanist. Rob Zombie has used a strong grade of Symbolism here at the beginning. There are equivalently systematized delusions in between Laurie's mind and the film itself. Through Laurie's submission of her soul to the Devil, Michael Myers's soul captures her mind to give her enough courage to not to fear. The Satanist symbol of the black star inside a circle is shown several times during Laurie's submission of her soul. Using fear to heal her wounds, she appeals to take revenge.
Watching this movie may require some guide of clues, so you can have some explanation. The second scene that starts with the traffic accident causing Laurie to be delivered to another hospital is the last scene you should watch. Go to the end, up until the closing credits. There are good photography works there like rage with ensuing chaos and destruction; you will realize who killed Laurie. If you have watched the entire movie thinking that Laurie is alive, you would be discouraged so badly at the end. The reason for that is the production of the movie is half-the-way and stands very raw. There are supposed to be more scenes to be cut or relocated. Not only the production phases effect the completion of the movie, it kills the script to become such a nonsense with the imbalance between the plot and storyboard. Basically, this is the main reason why the film doesn't tell you anything.
Even if you just want to watch the murdering scenes, sadly you'll still be disappointed. 'Cause the camera work is terrible and the lighting can't focus you to the action. Plus for some reason every murder scene is interrupted with a funny outlook of a daemon in the delusion of Deborah Myers walking towards the camera with a white horse beside it.
Rob Zombie's film never accomplished anything more than offering ridiculous materials for the next Scary Movie sequel. In my opinion here is the most ridiculous one: That guy is drinking outside of the bar near his light duty truck. Then our delusion hero comes closer to him after committing multiple assassinations with all the screams and clutter happening 10 feet away of him. Our truck driver doesn't panic, he doesn't even pretend to look calm to covertly call the police or something. He thinks he is the Terminator(in this film I wouldn't be surprised if he turned out to be) and says to our immortal delusion hero: "Look man, don't give me no reason, OK?". Less than a second passed we witnessed his corpse divided into two halves cut right from his belly.
My advise to whomever want to watch this film: Go start work as an undertaker. You'll see less disgusting corpses.
